    Austrian Freedom Party Wants Democracy Test for Immigrants

    The Freedom party has doubts about the right mindset of immigrants about democracy. A democracy test should be the right answer to such a development and remove all scepsis.

    Especially if someone, who came from a foreign country, wants to receive a sponsored flat, the successful result of such kind of test should be the suitable qualification for the benefit. Someone who desires a sponsored flat from the government, must possess impeccable manners in relation to our democracy, says the Upper Austrian council for residential building who is also a member of the Freedom party.

    The politican confirms talks with concerning residential building companionships, and his great dream that no integration reluctant person should receive a sponsored flat in his sphere of influence.

    Politicans of other parties are not so happy about that plan. A fraction chairman of the Peoples party labeles the idea of the Freedom party as expression of awkwardness. Socialdemocrats characterize it as cheap propaganda. The Greens locate an exclusion, and the integration office called Mosaik fears very big problems, if this regulation becomes reality.

    The only party, besides the Freedom party, who can find something positive in the controversial arrangement is the Orange party also known as BZ֔. BZ social spokeswoman and sister of Jrg Haider Ursula Haubner said that such a democracy test would be useful and necessary.

    I'm getting tired of this integration and democracy rhetoric. Why should the government have to sponsor flats for foreigners, no matter how democratic their mindset is?

    Our nations are about the people of those nations, not any "ism" or form of government. From race comes culture, and only thence come forms of government.

    They figure that any obstacles that will result in fewer immigrants and or immigrants on wellfare is worth implementing. Make it as difficult and as much of a hassle as possible for them to settle down here and hopefully there will be fewer of them coming here, even if the meassures proposed, individually, can seem futile and non-productive from a preservationist standpoint. Unfortunately though we have not yet reached the point where more straight forward arguments about whether we should even allow immigration in the first place can recieve the level of support needed, so for the time being we will have to settle for small victories in the hopes of greater ones in the future.

    Here in Britain we have these sort of "tests" for foreigners but they're so easy that anyone can pass them! As regards this one, I suspect that immigrants will just give the answers they know are required to pass the so-called Democracy Test.

    I agree with Ostmark here - there is no justification for immigrants to still be flooding into Europe and a much cheaper and quicker option would just be to say NO MORE, WE'RE FULL!!!!

    Still, I understand your reasoning Patrioten about small, psychological victories and the creation of hurdles - however insignificant - to try and discourage the less tenacious candidates. As a stepping-stone policy this may be useful and I'm sure the Freedom Party will go further than this when the time is right
